Fully flexible courses are those where students apply to complete a full qualification but are entitled to study this at their own pace rather than during a set timeframe. There may be a maximum amount of time a student has to complete the qualification, but during this time students have a high degree of flexibility in the intensity at which they study and may take breaks in learning. A course is not necessarily fully flexible if there are arrangements in place for students to take a study break by notifying the provider.
